EcoHealth Research with Indigenous Communities


EcoHealth Posters at ArcticNet Annual Scientific Meeting

Written by Sherilee Harper

The poster session is one of my favourite aspects of the ArcticNet Annual Scientific Meetings, and this year was no exception.  Of all the conferences that I have participated in, the ArcticNet poster session is among the best attended and most engaging poster sessions.

Our research group had a number of posters presented at this conference, showcasing work that ranged from climate change impacts on mental health and wellbeing, to community-based climate-health monitoring, to place-attachment and maternal health, to caribou documentaries, to one-health projects.

Members from our research group were awarded 1st and 2nd place in the Graduate Student Poster Competition!  Congratulations David and Alexandra for your 1st and 2nd place win (respectively)!


Students Share Their EcoHealth Research at the OVC Graduate Research Symposium

Written by Anna Manore, MSc Candidate

On November 16th, students from the Harper Lab showcased their work at the OVC Graduate Student Research Symposium through posters and oral presentations. Students Danielle Julien and Anna Manore took home the 1st place prizes in the PhD and MSc poster competitions, respectively.

The day closed with the Schofield Memorial Lecture, which was delivered by Dr. Jonna Mazet, a professor of Epidemiology and OneHealth at the UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine. Dr. Mazet gave an excellent talk on “One Health Success: Moving toward a world free of pandemics”, which discussed her work with PREDICT – a project of the United States Agency for International Development for the surveillance of wildlife zoonotic diseases with pandemic potential.
